I am not sure if this is the right place to ask. My family has been using a "strict" curriculum since my oldest DS began homeschooling. He is now finished with 6th grade. I have 3 children, DS age 12, DS age 9 (soon to be 10), and DD age 7 (she is STILL not reading, and supposed to be going into 2nd grade! {another concern!})
I used a different curriculum 1 year, and my kids seemed to enjoy it more...but I got nervous about "missing something" and went back to the stricter curriculum. I feel like we are NOT very successful at learning what we should. My boys HATE reading the textbooks (ie. history, science, etc) and have grown to hate reading altogether, which breaks my heart!
I am thinking of using KONOS next year. I think my kids would enjoy doing more hands on stuff, but is it geared for younger kids, and my older boy will feel like he's doing "baby stuff"? Being that my oldest son is going into 7th grade, I am already thinking of how to keep up with high school. I wish someone could TELL me that this IS the answer, that my kids will learn what they need to go to college, and be successful in life (which may or may NOT include college, but I know I should prepare them no matter what!) I know this is an extremely long post...but I'm nervous about changing curriculums. I know I'm not the only one who has gone through this. Any advice??? How do you keep up with high school transcripts if there was no formal curriculum????
